Morris Katz, the “King of Schlock Art”, has died.
Morris (Moshe) Katz has died after suffering a stroke at his home in Manhattan, New York. He was 78-years-old.
Known for his painting technique of using a palette knife wrapped in toilet paper in lieu of a conventional paintbrush, this unconventional artist holds two Guinness World Records; one for “world’s fastest painter” and the other for “world’s most prolific artist.”
Katz is also listed in “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” as as a human oddity for his ability to paint full works of art in less than five minutes using his “Instant Art Method.”
